Try Massage for Managing Stress at Work

Published September 5th, 2023 by Dr. Hoder

You just finished enjoying the fruits of your labor with a well-deserved day off. Are you already feeling anxious about going back to the office? Managing stress at work is an ongoing process that requires regular upkeep and multiple approaches. Massage is one of the best tools you can use in the fight for stress relief, and it can help you relax after work.  

Why Try Massage for Managing Stress at Work

If you’ve never had a massage before—or even if you have—your first association may be relaxation. Indeed, massage helps put you at ease and relax, and that can be a big help after a tough day at work. One reason is that massage helps to relieve physical stress that builds up in your muscles, causing stiffness, pain, and headaches

Massage therapy also promotes better circulation and the release of endorphins, which helps regulate mood and facilitates general relaxation, thus promoting better stress relief. That’s why a massage leaves you with an almost euphoric feeling—your body is chemically reacting to the treatment in a positive way, and that reaction can be a major help for managing stress at work.

The fact is, massage therapy alone cannot provide absolute relief from stress at work. But in helping you with managing your stress levels, it can give you a better outlook and more energy for getting work done, and allow you to get the rest you need to stay consistent throughout the week.
